New Weekly Flights from Calgary Canada to Belize Courtesy WestJet

On July 24th WestJet announced new non-stop weekly service between Calgary, CA and Belize, to start effective November 3rd 2017 in a beefed up seasonal winter schedule.

As a major North American market for Belize, we can see the benefits of adding more accessible airlift for Canadians who account for roughly 8% of Belize’s overnight arrivals, according to the Belize Tourism Board’s data.

In October 2016, when WestJet began a twice-weekly service from Toronto’s Pearson International Airport to Philip Goldson International in Belize City, the airline’s executive vice-president Bob Cummings remarked “Leaving Canada and hitting the beaches in Belize by mid-day is something that Canadian travelers are not used to and we have absolutely changed the game with our twice-weekly service from Toronto.”

  1. Great idea. Only problem can’t book return flights from belize to calgary early enough to get returned fare status in canadian funds. Especially problematic if have a in cabin pet

  2. Any plans to have direct flights from Winnipeg to Belize.It would be nice having flights seeing is Winnipeg is closer to Belize then Calgary.
